Tips to support your journey to become a hero.
We know that therapy can be difficult at times. This page helps you create routines and support your child during training.
Learn how others fly
Since every brain is different, we asked people how they control the game.
Here are their strategies! Try them out and see if they work for you too!
I attempted mental arithmetic. But it had to be something where I really had to make an effort, so nothing simple like 40+20.
I visually imagined the figure flying up and collecting the stars.
I try not to think about anything and instead focus on my breath.
I mentally listed all the words I know that begin with "M".
For me, it worked best when I repeated difficult French vocabulary. Words where I didn't immediately have a translation in my head, but had to really think to remember them.
I thought hard about pesto. What it tastes like, how to prepare it, what you can do with it, etc.
It is supposed to be difficult!
The training can be very challenging – but no rewards without effort – so it’s important to keep encouraging your child during training. The results are worth the effort!
Motivation made simple
Make an agreement with your child!
A personal tip from Brainhero founder Christof: Make an agreement with each other!
Write in the agreement that there will be a reward and what the reward will be when you reach the 20h training goal and both sign.
The idea behind it: If the motivation is lacking, you can remind your child of the agreement and the upcoming reward.
Create your own agreement or use our templates below!
Set yourself up for success
Encourage your child
The training may be difficult – but that’s part of the learning process. If it feels hard, remind your child that this means they are challenging their mind to grow stronger.
Keep your spirits high
Sometimes your child will not want to train and that is ok.
Take a look at what you achieved so far and be proud about the progress you already made.
Let your child watch you train
Use the guest profile to train yourself while your child is watching – children like to copy their parent’s behaviour. It might also help them feel less alienated because they are not the only ones training.
Integrate the therapy into your everyday life as something nice you do together like watching a movie.
